7 hours on the water today and I got one 16" eye at a different lake.
I got a lot more than 30 casts on on two different cranks before switching to wacky's and then on to a crawdad pattern plastic Texas Rig. No dice. I also threw some casts in a little pond on the south side of the big lake where I could see some carp but of course, no dice.

Been skunked this year bad. Been fishing on the north side of town, throwing everything in my bag without any luck. Getting real frustrated, as I wanted to get my son out with me soon.

Being out is a great time, catching is better, but still. And of course, that's why its called fishing and not catching.

Today was my closest to getting skunked outing in a while, although I did manage a few perch and a small catfish. But nothing like the fishing Ive been getting into. Hey Nympho, do you ever throw topwater

Had a good night at Shatty Friday. 4.5 lb eye. Just shy of 22." Man that fish was healthy. Chatty eyes are eating well. It was spotty action but I picked up three others undersized.

I fish the entire column. When you say topwater do you mean like poppers? I fish the top with everything from pooppers to dry flies. Frogs and mice. Only the dries seem to work.

Yea that's what im talking about, a lot of times I have luck with topwater when I can't find the fish that actually want to eat. I really like the rapala original floaters, they get fish's attention at the top but are extremely subtle, I catch fish on them many many times when they won't hit poppers or frogs

I tried to paste only the one picture but got the link to the page instead. But the 8th cartoon down is pretty scary. Future of fishing perhaps?

Well I got skunked at Georgetown Lake yesterday. Was using powerbait and worms on one pole and casting a variety of different caster baits on my other pole. Not so much as even a nibble.

Granted it was my first time there, but damn I thought I'd see some sort of action!
